Pension and IRA Coverage Among Boomer, Pre-Boomer, and Older Workers

This Public Policy Institute paper by Jules Lichtenstein and Ke Bin Wu looks at the retirement plan coverage of boomer, pre-boomer and older workers as well as vulnerable groups within this workforce--women, minorities, and low-income workers. In addition to assessing coverage on different jobs during a career, this paper also examines the type of plan in which a worker participates including defined benefit plans, 401(k)-type plans, and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
